    Im not looking to spend some big bucks. I just need to focus it on one spot.

    Linksys has a decent one @ BestBuy for around $100, but the thing about cameras is they're not auto-focus, they're not good in low-light situations either.

    That one at linksys had a link to this one at newegg that does work in low light situations and has an autofocus. I am thinking of getting this one:

    Did you try any of them yet? I have tried many older cheapy solutions and didn't like their quality. I ended up buying like 50ft/100ft/150ft cables and uses real CCTV cameras.

    hey Lil, that one you linked to has some pretty piss-poor ratings. i don't know if i'd trust it.

    where is the autofocus one from Linksys? i gotta see it to believe it.

    It looked to me like they had some problems with the product a while ago and have been writing firmware to improve it. The reviews get better as time goes on. I guess they still say it can be loud, but the manufacturer is obviously willing to work with people! I don't know, maybe not good enough to buy yet, but definitely worth watching, especially at that price....

    I just noticed at Newegg that you can do a sort by highest rating.... This is the one that comes up. It is only $137.99. But even at the higest rating, less than 50% gave it a perfect score!

    Went back and sorted by highest rating again and now this one comes up... I'm confuzeded...
